American Idol is a singing competition that has been airing on Television since 2002. The show is produced by FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment and is distributed by FremantleMedia. The series seeks to find new singing talent.
The judges for the show are Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryans. The hosts have also been various celebrities, with the most recent being Ryan Seacrest. He also hosted the previous seasons.
Judges will hear singers from Los Angeles, California; Austin, Texas; and Nashville, Tennessee who auditioned.
The judges were taken aback last week by Luke Taylor, a West Chester resident from the PA region, who has a very low voice. Despite not receiving a vote from Perry, Taylor is going to Hollywood.
During the week before, Aretha Franklin’s grandchild, Grace Franklin, failed to get a Golden Ticket from the judges – a decision that Perry did not enjoy. She walked off the set after receiving this news.
If a lucky contestant wins the Golden Ticket, he or she may move on to the Hollywood round. This season, three contestants will be given a Platinum Ticket, allowing them to skip the first stage of Hollywood week.
Previously During the first week of Season 20 of American Idol, a country artist known as Huntergirl performed for the judges. Hunter Wolkonowski is a 23-year-old from Middle Tennessee State who has just graduated. She works as a music therapist for veterans from the military.
The second Platinum Ticket went out during the second week. This was given to TikTok star Kenedi Anderson. The 17-year-old high school student from Virginia sat at the piano and sang Lady Gaga’s Applause.
